Anne and Stephen's 25th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

Sunday 14th August marked the date when the Benefice celebrated Anne and Stephen's 25th Wedding Anniversary.

Archdeacon John Cox Celebrated and Preached at the Benefice Service at Wickhambrook on 14th August at 10.00am, during which Anne and Stephen renewed their Wedding vows.

It was Archdeacon John who brought them to this Diocese, when he interviewed me for the Incumbency of Brandon in 1996. The service was concluded with gifts for Anne and Stephen from the Benefice. Afterwards they were joined in the Benefice Hall for champagne and anniversary cake.

A note of thanks

"On a personal note, we would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made the Benefice service at Wickhambrook on the 14th August so very special. The service, especially the music, was wonderful. Even more uplifting was the obvious love and warmth from our many friends in the Benefice. The lovely and very generous presents were a delightful, and much appreciated surprise, as were all your cards and greetings. Thank you all so much, we feel privileged to be here."
